Jaguar are a British car manufacturer known for manufacturing sporty compact sedans, coupes and convertibles, as well as the luxurious XJ sedan. The brand’s sporting heritage spans several decades and was thrust into the limelight in the Sixties with the gorgeous E-type (called the XK-E for the US market) that was a hero on the racetrack, as well as the silver screen. Since then, Jaguar have continued with a string of hits in the sports car arena. The F-type was conceived as the spiritual successor to the legendary E-type and took after the XK ended its 18-year production run that spanned two generations. This 2015 Jaguar F-Type R comes from Texas with 41,000 miles on the odometer.
The F-Type’s design was penned by renowned designer Ian Callum and is a taut and purposeful design that exudes power, poise, and purpose. This 2015 Jaguar F-Type R wears an Indigo Blue Metallic paintwork that is complemented by the 20-inch polished Jaguar alloys, which are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport tires. The tires are reported to be brand new, with only 100 miles on them. At the front, the cat-like headlamp clusters stare at you, whilst the gaping grille is not just for show, but helps keep the supercharged engine cool. This car is also fitted with the Lighting Package. At the rear, quad exhausts and an automatic spoiler that raises or lowers depending on vehicle speed is present. The interior is black, with tan leather seats emblazoned with the R logo on the headrests. A splash of carbon fiber trim on the dash adds to the sporty aura. There is a decent array of creature comforts on offer, including dual-zone climate control, full infotainment system with touch screen, Meridian surround sound system and powered memory seats, as well as a glass roof.
The F-type range offers three engines, and this 2015 Jaguar F-Type R is fitted with the largest of them, a 305ci (5.0L) supercharged V8. Putting out 542 hp at 6,500rpm and 502 lb-ft of torque in a broad spread between 2,500 and 5,500rpm, this beast packs runaway locomotive performance to match its looks. An eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters behind the steering wheel send the power to the rear wheels. The performance figures are impressive, with just 4 seconds required to reach 60mph from rest, and a top speed north of 180mph. Large ventilated disc brakes on all four wheels help bring it to a stop, and the suspension includes adaptive dampers which allow adjustment of ride height and firmness.
